Dr. Irani was very personable and spend a lot of time in the initial consult to go through my past medical and fertility treatment history...He didn't offer us the shared risk program since we had previous IVF failure but encouraged us to continue using our own eggs...He was sympathetic and explained again our new odds based on the last retrieval. We're in our second IVF cycle with him currently since we purchased the 2 IVF cycle package in the beginning. He did offer a small refund ($1500-$3000 depending on whether we want to give up or use donor eggs)
the [Advanced Fertility Center] nurse coordinator usually call in the afternoon after each check-up to give you instructions. She is also easily reachable via email or the portal...They also offered some donated drugs for me since I pay everything out of pocket. A very compassionate and professional group of staff...I never waited longer than an hour for my appointments so it's not too bad. The earlier your appointment is, the less you'd have to wait.
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani had a virtual initial consult to accommodate us being out of town. He didn't rush us one bit and answered all our questions. We were initially very optimistic after the consultation since he gave us fairly good odds. He didn't offer us the shared risk program since we had previous IVF failure but encouraged us to continue using our own eggs. I then saw him again for the ERA test, the egg retrieval, and then a phone consult after the genetic testing shown no viable embryo. He was sympathetic and explained again our new odds based on the last retrieval. We're in our second IVF cycle with him currently since we purchased the 2 IVF cycle package in the beginning. He did offer a small refund ($1500-$3000 depending on whether we want to give up or use donor eggs). Even though our results haven't been great. I feel like his use of medication had achieved the best retrieval number so far compared to our last clinic. We're still glad that we gave him a try.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Even though you might save money with the multi-package, knowing our odds now we wished we would have saved the money for the donor egg program.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani was very personable and spend a lot of time in the initial consult to go through my past medical and fertility treatment history. Dr. Irani's team is also very approachable and organized, especially compared to my previous fertility clinic.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
No OBC prior to the cycle since Dr. Irani suspect it may have been suppressing my egg production. First started the stimulation with follistim (~300IU) plus low dose HCG (8IU), Omnitrope (0.5cc), and Dexamethasone pill each day. After 5 days, added cetrotide/ganirelix. My stimulation lasted 14 days with retrieval on day 16, with lupron and low dose HCG trigger prior.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Ashley)
It appears that the clinic monitoring (ultrasound and lab tech) and my primary nurse coordinator work separately. The nurse coordinator usually call in the afternoon after each check-up to give you instructions. She is also easily reachable via email or the portal. They usually answer on the same day even on the weekend. They also offered some donated drugs for me since I pay everything out of pocket. A very compassionate and professional group of staff.
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
strength- good success stats, great nursing and doctor team weakness/things you would want to know - they see a lot of patients, it's hard to imagine how they can operate at such capacity, but I never waited longer than an hour for my appointments so it's not too bad. The earlier your appointment is, the less you'd have to wait.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
IVF multicycle package $20,250 (up to 2 IVF/2 FET with monitoring and ICSI, plan is complete when a baby is born), PGT $4000, ERA $1000
Describe Mohamad Irani's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
We were supposed to use genetic testing and then eSET but didn't get to the transfer since there was no viable embryo after the PGT-A testing.

While time spent with the RE was usually brief, I always felt like Dr. Irani was compassionate and truly cared about his patients. Our treatment seemed to be based on our personal situation and diagnosis, and not a cookie cutter one-size-fits-all plan...
[Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] Strengths: Excellent care. Great staff. Cycles aren't batched or timed to the clinic's convenience. Private recovery bays up in Gurnee where anesthesia procedures and embryo transfers take place. Minimal wait between diagnosis and starting IVF cycle. Worked well with insurance. Weaknesses...often a long wait past your appointment time for morning monitoring because they get overbooked. Bring a book and work with your boss if possible for late starts.

Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
Luteal phase estrogen priming for approx 3 days, then antagonist protocol with low dose HCG. Triggered with HCG after 12 days of stims and a day 5 fresh transfer was performed. AFC was around the average for my age and roughly the same number of eggs were retrieved.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
All workers at the clinic were extremely pleasant, even on weekends or in the early morning. Unfortunately monitoring appointments in the AM seem to get overbooked, resulting in being seen well after your given appointment time (average about 45 min late). This isn't the fault of the staff, but can be frustrating if you don't have flexibility on getting to work late.

Hit OOP max through insurance. Still waiting to find out exactly how much of my lifetime maximum infertility benefit was eaten up by the one IVF cycle. Cryopreservation was not covered by insurance and cost $1000.
Describe Mohamad Irani's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Dr. Irani strongly encouraged transferring one embryo due to maternal age (< 35) and no previous failed transfers. We fully agreed with this approach, and would not have been comfortable going against the current ASRM guidance to embryo transfers.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
There was one appointment that was given in written instructions but not scheduled in the portal; a quick message to the staff to confirm that I should still come in easily fixed the issue.

Dr. Irani is a caring and optimistic provider who treats you with compassion and kindness...he manages a high volume of patients, but even so he's made himself very available to email and phone check ins...he never makes you feel rushed or that he has a million other things going on. My only issue has been a lack of information getting into my medical chart from conversations we did have, so I had to remind the staff of these conversations which resulted in additional stress + wasted time getting and starting medications.
I do believe this is a well run clinic [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] who hires great staff. Because of the popularity of Dr. Irani, there have been long wait times on occasion for monitoring appointments, but I know they were trying as best as they could to remedy the situation, and they were always apologetic. You have to be on top of your medical care and your best advocate.
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Out of the three consults I had, I chose Dr. Irani because he seemed very knowledgeable and up to date about the best fertility practices for my case. He also provided me with hope and examples of how he has helped other women with DOR. When I had a question about the treatment approach, he called me promptly to discuss (vs. getting no answer at all, or dealing with nursing staff only). And when you are talking with him, he never makes you feel rushed or that he has a million other things going on. My only issue has been a lack of information getting into my medical chart from conversations we did have, so I had to remind the staff of these conversations which resulted in additional stress + wasted time getting and starting medications.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
I would say to definitely be your best advocate and don't be afraid to push and ask questions when needed. You deserve the best.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani is a caring and optimistic provider who treats you with compassion and kindness. He has gained popularity due to his expertise, and therefore the clinic can get very busy for monitoring appointments. I imagine he manages a high volume of patients, but even so he's made himself very available to email and phone check ins. On two occasions, however, I had to remind the staff who had to communicate with Dr. Irani of a conversation we'd had to add in a medication and to switch to oral medications from injectables. Having to remind the staff and doctor of this did make me feel like a name on a spreadsheet and created more back and forth. However, overall I do believe the staff at AFCC has the best intentions.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
To date, I have completed three unsuccessful IUIs. My goal was to do egg retrievals but I have not had enough follicles (3+) for an egg retrieval due to my DOR. The first IUI, I took IVF injectables which was converted to an IUI when I did not produce enough follicles. I primed with Estrace, started with Omnitroupe, Letrozole, and 300 units of GonalF daily. The second cycle, I just took Letrozole, and the third I took Clomid + 450 units of GonalF daily.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Christine)
All the nurses and ultrasound techs I have encountered are warm, caring, responsive and dependable.
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
In my limited experience with fertility clinics, I do believe this is a well run clinic who hires great staff. Because of the popularity of Dr. Irani, there have been long wait times on occasion for monitoring appointments, but I know they were trying as best as they could to remedy the situation, and they were always apologetic. You have to be on top of your medical care and your best advocate. Fertility treatments are a steep learning curve but the staff and Dr. Irani are there to help you learn and understand, never making you feel that you were asking a silly question. Dr. Irani was very responsive to my questions and my advocating to try certain things. He collaborates very well with his patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Some of these costs are covered by my medical insurance, Progyny. Initial Consult ~$500. Hysteroscopy under anesthesia was ~$1,000. Each IUI is ~$1,800. Plus Medications Cost (~$0.00 for orals plus thousands for the Gonal F, Lupron, Cetrotide that I bought). Omnitroupe was a pricey out of pocket expense that I wish I would have not used.

Dr Irani has called me personally with test results on more than one occasion, when it's usually the nurses...He has a somewhat soft-spoken demeanor and he's not intimidating or brash like some other male doctors I've seen before. He always takes the time to explain everything very thoroughly and answers any questions we have along the way.
The energy is very calming at then [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] office and all the staff are so warm and comforting for you. I really can't think of any weaknesses. My experience has been wonderful in terms of what the doctor and nurses can control...Ashley is one of the nicest nurses I've ever had.

Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
My tests came back all normal, except I had one fallopian tube removed due to ectopic in 2019. My husband's analysis showed slightly low morphology (3.5%). Dr I recommended going right to IVF instead of IUI bc the chances of conceiving were much better. Antagonist protocol - Egg retrieval & fresh transfer - resulted in MMC at 8w. FET with estrogen priming - resulted in chemical pregnancy at 4w Next FET will include lovenox - TBD

He let us decide to do one or two, but advised against transferring multiples due to higher risk pregnancy and delivery. We had high chances of conceiving with IVF so we agreed to do a single embryo with each transfer.

Dr Irani was very comprehensive in his explanations of treatment, risks, benefits...seemed to have a great sense of humor...When we brought up concerns based on our faith (long term embryo management, what to do with embryos that are mosaic) he was able to readjust his initial recommendations with a plan that would hopefully allow us to still only need one retrieval but have plenty of options if needed down the road.
They [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] are willing to work with you even for odd requests. My husband is uncomfortable with providing his sample on site so they offered the alternatives of doing a off site collection and bringing it to the clinic w/in a set amount of time...Dr Irani was very pleasant...I found the consult very reassuring.
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr Irani was very comprehensive in his explanations of treatment, risks, benefits etc. When we asked questions that might not have made sense he was easily able to answer them in a more understandable way. He seemed very confident in his answers, facts, and plans for us.

He made a few jokes about my googling which set me at ease.

Dr. Irani is very knowledgeable and he makes sure you understand what is going to happen and why when he meets with you. If you have additional questions, he reaches out personally via email or phone to discuss...[he] can talk quickly, but if you need more time to process/understand the information he'll say it again in a different way. He really wants to make sure you are comfortable and understand the process.
As someone new to the overall fertility process [the AVC of Chicago] might be overwhelming with the lack of communication.

Dr. Irani is great at explaining the process and expectations. He emails quickly and calls if needed. However, I feel like the clinic is all over the place and not very well organized.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
I'm about to go through the protocol with Dr. Irani. He's using a completely different protocol and different stim meds than I have used in the past with other doctors. First, I'm NOT going to start with birth control which I think my body did not react well with. I'm starting after ovulation before the baseline/stims start with estrogen. Then I will be using HCG rather than menopur, and Cetrotide rather than ganorelix. Lupron to trigger rather than ovidrel. The only stim that is staying the same as I have used in the past is Gonal-F. I have not yet started this cycle. Looking forward to seeing the difference, especially without using birthcontrol.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
There seems to be very little organization at the clinic. You call the office and it's a 3rd party that answers and they transfer you to the clinic if someone is available and it's an emergency. They may or may not call you back if you do not get through. On my first visit, I was supposed to get an ultrasound and bloodwork, I only got my blood drawn. I think if they had more individuals working in the clinic this place would be great. I think they are understaffed, which makes it seem a bit chaotic.

Dr. Irani is very approachable and kind. I only met with him one time, but After each procedure, he would personally call to go over options and was willing to answer all of my questions. He also gave me his email address and was very responsive, often returning my emails within just a few hours, even on evenings and weekends...The first cycle, we used letrozole. That did not work so we moved to injectables. Each month, he prescribed an increasing dose of Follistim
The nursing team [of Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] is a major strength for this clinic. I think I technically had a nurse assigned to me, but they all made phone calls, and did procedures and blood draws...They do not batch patients, which was important to me...The biggest disappointment to me was that they do not have a portal. I have a few doctors that I work with and that made coordinating care a bit challenging because I had to request copies of my lab results, which was no big deal but sometimes I felt like I had to explain why I wanted them
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani always treated me with respect and explained things both compassionately and scientifically. He was careful to go over the probabilities of success with my low AMH and antral follicle count. I am a complex patient, with premature ovarian failure and autoimmune issues. I felt that he was open to working with outside specialists to a degree; he never disputed other doctor's recommendations but he also did not fully endorse them or actively collaborate with them. He was willing to work with me using my own eggs, but he had a strict limit of antral follicles to proceed to an IVF retrieval. I consistently had only 1-2, so he would only do IUI. After 6 months, I felt that I was on a merry-go-round each month. He made adjustments each IUI cycle, but generally followed a high-stim protocol and did not deviate much from that, unless I specifically asked to try something.

I would recommend Dr. Irani to someone who has a more straightforward health profile without any reservations. For women with complex issues, such as DOR or POF/POI, particularly if their follicle count is low, I would recommend seeing someone with more expertise in those conditions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani is very approachable and kind. I only met with him one time, but After each procedure, he would personally call to go over options and was willing to answer all of my questions. He also gave me his email address and was very responsive, often returning my emails within just a few hours, even on evenings and weekends.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
The first cycle, we used letrozole. That did not work so we moved to injectables. Each month, he prescribed an increasing dose of Follistim. He added estrogen priming and ganirelix. He also prescribed progesterone suppositories after IUIs. He adjusted dosages and made tweaks to that general protocol each month.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
The nursing staff in the Chicago office are excellent. The nursing team is a major strength for this clinic. I think I technically had a nurse assigned to me, but they all made phone calls, and did procedures and blood draws. Most of them remembered me, and they were all friendly and easy to work with.
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
I appreciate that they are open 7 days a week and 364 days a year. They do not batch patients, which was important to me. The clinic is clean and the waiting room is comfortable. The exam rooms in the Chicago office are spacious and they offer feminine hygiene items without having to ask. The biggest disappointment to me was that they do not have a portal. I have a few doctors that I work with and that made coordinating care a bit challenging because I had to request copies of my lab results, which was no big deal but sometimes I felt like I had to explain why I wanted them. My husband expressed some dissatisfaction with the semen collection process. The receptionist would sometimes discuss financial matters with reference to specific procedures to patients while they were still in the waiting room. It would have been more respectful of patients' privacy to invite them to simply walk through the door next to her desk to have a conversation away from the other patients. That said, I found her to be friendly and otherwise respectful.
What specific things went wrong at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Overall this clinic is very well run. There was one time when one nurse gave conflicting information from another nurse because she couldn't find something in my chart. Nothing bad came of it but for a patient who is not savvy to the process, or to someone who is uncomfortable questioning doctors and nurses, it might have lead to confusion. I had an IUI canceled once as a result of some unexplained clinical error or oversight. I had been in for monitoring leading up to ovulation, and was told to return again the next day for labs and monitoring. When I went in 24 hours later, I had ovulated already. No explanation was offered.

Dr. Irani fully reviewed my past treatment and medical records. He felt that I didn't need to be "over-medicated" to produce a lot eggs. He ensured we understood the process. He always called with the results. My fresh transfer ended in a ectopic and he called me directly each day to see how I was doing. He also coordinated care with my OB to ensure the ectopic was properly managed.
They [Advanced Fert Ctr of Chicago] also offer financing through Lending Club, which was helpful as the rates were lower than taking out a personal loan. You can call, and if your nurse isn't there, another one will call you back. Sometimes though, it can be disappointing if that nurse doesn't know you. Their website is very detailed and has a lot of information on it, including costs of every procedure.

Dr. Irani takes time to know his clients and other details of their lives. He allows you to email him directly with questions or concerns, and he will respond personally.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
Dr. Irani felt that I would be a good responder. I didn't need a long protocol to produce eggs. I just stimmed for 9 days and then had retrieval. I only needed to use Follistim and low-dose HCG which was very cost effective.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Sue)
Sue was my primary nurse. She was always compassionate and was great at communication. She also took time to explain things and go over results when they came in.

Dr. Irani allowed me to pick one or two embryos because they were not genetically tested. He recommended one, but it was my choice.

Dr Irani personally called me several times with updates on fertilization results and PGTA results. He was always super responsive to emails... is the most kind, compassionate and caring doctor I have ever experienced in my life...He was patient, and gentle...changed the protocol and added Human Growth Hormone. I was stimulating for longer but the second IVF cycle ended up with more viable eggs, and 4 made it to PGTA testing and then 2 came back PGTA normal...he was the one to do my egg retrieval’s and to do the ultrasound to find a heartbeat after a positive pregnancy test
the second IVF cycle [at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] ended up with more viable eggs, and 4 made it to PGTA testing and then 2 came back PGTA normal...the most compassionate and knowledgeable staff. This clinic is somehow able to offer very fair pricing and amazing one on one personalized care...My main nurse was Diane and she was simply amazing. She would respond to emails and calls immediately. They seem to work 24/7. Every single nurse I dealt with was the most sweetest and smartest nurse I have ever encountered. Cathy, Deanna, I cant thank all of them enough.
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr Irani is the most kind, compassionate and caring doctor I have ever experienced in my life. I feel so blessed to have found him and I truly believe he is a saint. He was patient, and gentle. It meant the world to me and built absolute trust that he was the one to do my egg retrieval’s and to do the ultrasound to find a heartbeat after a positive pregnancy test. He is world class.

Dr Irani personally called me several times with updates on fertilization results and PGTA results. He was always super responsive to emails.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
Our first IVF round was about 10 or 12 days of stimulation medicine. That retrieval led to zero quality eggs. They all arrested. Dr Irani changed the protocol and added Human Growth Hormone. I was stimulating for longer but the second IVF cycle ended up with more viable eggs, and 4 made it to PGTA testing and then 2 came back PGTA normal.

This clinic is somehow able to hire the most compassionate and knowledgeable staff. This clinic is somehow able to offer very fair pricing and amazing one on one personalized care. Their SART results are stellar and I think the reason is because f their excellent care.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
I believe we spent $40,000 in total including drugs for 2 rounds of IVF. All was out of pocket.
Describe Mohamad Irani's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
I completely agree with Dr Irani’s and the center for choosing eSET. The health of the mother and child come first. Twins are very high risk. When you have single PGTA normal embryos- I agree 100% to implant just 1.

I appreciated that if I emailed him [Dr. Mohamed Irani] with a question or concern, he would respond by calling me directly even if it was late in the evening. I liked that he wasn’t pushy but was informative and allowed me to choose after educating me with the appropriate information...I had an FET with Dr. Irani. He handled my medications and doses and performed the Embryo transfer. It was a success and I’m currently 7 weeks pregnant.
I had a good experience this time around [at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago]. However, my first IVF with the clinic, I was never told about the grades of my embryos or when to come back for my fresh transfer. I had to call the clinic on a weekend (day 3 post egg retrieval) to ask and the nurse at that time was snippy because I paged them for a non urgent matter. After telling her that they never called me with information and that I was already on progesterone for the transfer without a transfer date, she calmed down and told me the information I needed to know.

I just wish she would email or leave detailed voicemails of my medication changes when I can’t get to my phone. The other nurses that called on behalf of Sue were excellent and left me detailed voicemails when I was unable to get to my phone which I appreciated. I only had to call back if I didn’t understand the directions given.

Strengths- patient to answering questions, non intimidating, feelings of ease and comfort.

Dr. Irani is very compassionate and warm. He took his time explaining everything to my husband and I. We never felt like our appointments were rushed through or that Dr. Irani had somewhere else to be. He took the time to call us from his home the morning he wanted us to come in for transfer. He also called us on a Saturday afternoon after our cycle failed to check on us and offer his support and encouraged us to get out for a date night.

I would definitely recommend making an appointment with Dr. Irani. He takes his time to explain everything to you and is even available by phone and email with any further questions you have. My husband and I knew immediately after our consultation with him that we were going to switch clinics and come to AFCC to see Dr. Irani.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
At AFCC you talk with the nurses regularly on the phone. Dr. Irani has called us several times himself as well, even over the weekend and after our cycle failed to check on us. At my previous clinic, the nurses only messaged you online through my chart. We never heard from our doctor directly.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
I did estrogen priming and an Agonist protocol I believe. I did Lupron with high dose Follistim (400 units). I also did Omnitrope for 8 days of stimulation. We retrieved 3 eggs and all 3 fertilized with ICSI.

We are moving right back in to another round of IUI and plan to attempt 3 rounds before considering IVF. ...
Since my initial meeting, every question I have had has been promptly and thoroughly handled ... As a self pay patient, one of my main concerns was cost so he [doctor] even tailored a plan to exhaust the most affordable options first ... Ashley [nurse] is beyond amazing! She is the only nurse in the Crystal Lake [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] location so she is sometimes away from her desk, but she will call you back IMMEDIATELY after she gets back to see the message. ... She is so compassionate and wonderful at "breaking the bad news" to you in a way that doesn't feel like the scripted responses you get from other clinics.
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani made me feel welcomed and understood from the moment I sat down in his office. He even went over our scheduled time together and answered every single question I threw his way. After being severely misinformed by my original RE, I had a giant list of clarifications that I was desperate for answers about. He listened attentively to each concern that I had without judgment or ridicule. I never felt demeaned or belittled like I was asking a "stupid" or unnecessary question. He provided me with not only an answer to each concern, but scientific backing to each answer. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear, he told me what I needed to hear. I was tired of long winded half answers, and he made sure to articulate everything in laments terms as well as provided risks and rewards for each option I had. He set everything straight for me and not only laid out a treatment plan for me, but told me he was confident he would get me pregnant without issue. As a self pay patient, one of my main concerns was cost so he even tailored a plan to exhaust the most affordable options first. Although I am still early in my journey with him, I feel at home and am confident that I will find success under Dr. Irani's thoughtful and straightforward care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Come prepared with questions! Do not be shy or fearful that you will be bothering him. He is incredibly thorough and provides plenty for you on his own, but he is patient and kindhearted and will make sure that you are just as comfortable with the entire process as he is.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
After a year long battle with my original fertility clinic to even SEE a doctor, I was extremely tentative about seeing another doctor, fearful of the same thing happening again. Dr. Irani made me feel welcomed and understood from the moment I sat down in his office. He even went over our scheduled time together and answered every single question I threw his way.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
I am 29 and my husband is 32. We have been trying to conceive for almost 3 years now. My husbands semen analysis came back with a barely low count, just a point below "average" but nothing that Dr. Irani was concerned about due to all other aspects being normal with high volume. Every test came back normal for me. My cycles are spot on 27-28 days long. I ovulate late in CD 10 or early CD 11 every month without fail. My follicle count, estrogen, AMH, progesterone... everything came back within normal or above normal range at the right time in my cycle. My saline infusion came back normal with no reported tube blockages. Dr. Irani said that he was absolutely confident that he would be successful with IVF due to my age and regularity. Since we are self pay, we also had the option to skip IUI and move directly to IVF if we wanted (since we did not have insurance requirements to start with the smaller treatment). Since our diagnosis was generally unexplained with the only thing coming up as a barely low count from my husband, Dr. Irani was also confident that we were excellent candidates to achieve a success with IUI if we wanted to start with the most cost effective option. I stared Clomid on my first cycle (CD 3-7) and went in for my first monitoring appointment on CD 10. I measured with 2 mature follicles and my LH had already naturally risen, so we immediately did the trigger shot and scheduled my IUI for the next day. I returned on CD 18 for my progesterone test that came back at 29. I returned on CD 26 for my beta which came back negative and started my period the next day. We are moving right back in to another round of IUI and plan to attempt 3 rounds before considering IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Ashley)
Ashley is beyond amazing! She is the only nurse in the Crystal Lake location so she is sometimes away from her desk, but she will call you back IMMEDIATELY after she gets back to see the message. She is patient with me no matter how many questions I ask about process or next steps. She is so compassionate and wonderful at "breaking the bad news" to you in a way that doesn't feel like the scripted responses you get from other clinics. When she told me about my negative beta result, I could feel her heartache for me from miles away. Then she proceeded to talk me through potential next steps and advise me on my options. I couldn't ask for a better nurse!
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Since my initial meeting, every question I have had has been promptly and thoroughly handled by Dr. Irani and the Crystal Lake staff. The office is small, but their success rates speak for themselves. I have had to work with members of the Gurnee and Chicago office staff as well and they have always been kind, attentive and punctual with all requests that I have submitted.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
I do not recall how much the initial consult and preliminary diagnostic tests cost, however they offer an IUI package that includes all monitoring for $1,100.

Dr. Irani is a compassionate, genuine, and trustworthy man. I would highly recommend him. very caring and empathetic with the patient. He is willing to answer all my questions and emotionally support me during the treatment...I started the medications after my first ultrasound ( the second day of my cycle). Dr. Irani prescribed a high dosage from the hormone due to my problem with the number and size of the eggs.
I appreciate all Chicago office teams including the front desk [at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago]. The nurse and doctor are very responsive to emails and phone calls. They are very caring. I recommend the Chicago office. My experience with the Gurnee clinic front desk is not the best. I think they need training on how to work with diverse patients.

He [Dr. Irani] is straight forward but warm. He remembers details of my life (I have a son, my husband is military, etc)...He explained the fet procedure fully. I was confident with his skills. He also spent time with us earlier discussing our remaining embryos and whether we should pgs test them. He was extremely knowledgeable...Ask anything, he is really welcoming of questions...I was just doing an FET (we had 8 embryos from a previous donor egg cycle). My protocol was pill, then stopped pill and started estrogen patches and baby aspirin and prenatal, monitored via ultra sound in the 3 weeks prior to fet date. My lining was fine but estrogen a bit low so needed to add vaginal estrogen. The pio started 6 days prior to fet at night and antibiotics and medrol.
They [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] are great with out of town patients though I wish you got a discount on your cycles since I have to pay for monitoring out of pocket elsewhere. If I was local, that would all be covered in the cost of the cycle...the nursing staff was amazing! I always knew exactly what was going on, they were completely responsive. It was great!...FET 4000 + medications and for me I had additional of our town monitoring costs

Dr. Irani was so kind and patient. He always took time to ask how we were doing and to answer our questions thoroughly. I never felt we were rushed or just another number to him...We did three IVF cycles with each cycle we tried different medications to prep me for egg retrieval...He encouraged us to not lose hope, to stay positive...Dr. Irani's approach to single embryo transfer was on point with current research....
this clinic [Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago] was great to work with because they accommodated working patients and their use of technology made it easy to get in touch with someone with any questions or concerns you might have...Everyone seemed to enjoy their jobs which made me feel comfortable being there. When someone seems that they enjoy what they do, you feel that as a patient you are getting the best care...
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani was incredibly thorough in every interaction we had with him. He was always transparent and explained things in a way that helped us understand the journey we were taking part in. I don't think we would have been successful without him as part of our overall care team.

Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
We did three IVF cycles with each cycle we tried different medications to prep me for egg retrieval. Our first cycle we were able to get one embryo, we jumped right into another cycle which did not yield any embryos. We transferred the embryo from our first cycle and that transfer was ultimately not successful. He encouraged us to not lose hope, to stay positive. With our third cycle our one embryo was successfully transferred.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Two out of the three were minimal as they were covered by insurance, I paid less than $500. We did pay around $6,000 for genetic testing, and we did pay out of pocket for our second round which cost around $20,000 with medication.
Describe Mohamad Irani's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
While we only ever had one embryo that could be implanted for the first and third cycles, I felt that Dr. Irani's approach to single embryo transfer was on point with current research.

Dr. Irani is a careful listener and strives to humanize the IVF experience...so thankful we transferred our care to [him]...makes you feel seen as a patient and involves you in the decision making around your care...validated my concerns and agreed to pursue testing my previous clinic hadn't felt was necessary...As his patient, you even have his and the nursing team's direct emails.
AFCC is a large clinic that runs very smoothly. It took 3-4 days after I filled out the new patient intake online for someone to get back with me. After that I was able to set up a consult within a month and immediately went into a mock testing cycle from there...The finances do lag about a month for regular billing times, so don't be surprised when charges show up from the previous month.

Be patient with the clinic - it may take a few initial attempts to make contact. They are busy but can be counted on to get back to you on anything that is timely.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr. Irani is a careful listener and strives to humanize the IVF experience. He is quick to answer questions, go over detailed options, and open to new ideas. As his patient, you even have his and the nursing team's direct emails. Dr. Irani validated my concerns and agreed to pursue testing my previous clinic hadn't felt was necessary. I felt like I had a say in my care and was much more invested in the decision making.
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
EndomeTRIO testing and endometrium biopsy in a mock cycle with hysteroscopy. Found out I needed to treat possible bacteria and needed extra progesterone (amount and timing).

Aminty is awesome! She is thorough, a quick communicator, and a really positive person.
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
AFCC is a large clinic that runs very smoothly. It took 3-4 days after I filled out the new patient intake online for someone to get back with me. After that I was able to set up a consult within a month and immediately went into a mock testing cycle from there. From initial consult to transfer was about three months. The finances do lag about a month for regular billing times, so don't be surprised when charges show up from the previous month.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
About $2k for mock cycle with endometrio testing, biopsy, and hysteroscopy. About $15k for lot of 7 eggs. About $4k for transfer cycle.

Dr Irani is always compassionate, calm, and encourages questions. He responded to emails, at times even electing to call instead with good news or for a more complicated conversation about treatment options, test results, etc...He doesn’t rush through appointments and encourages patients to ask questions. He responds to emails quickly and is very positive but realistic...He also adjusted medications based on hormone levels and clearly wasn’t just using a one-size-fits-all protocol, as I have diminished ovarian reserve and was put on a personalized protocol.
AFCC is very organized, easy to schedule, and has an excellent lab. They communicate primarily through phone and the client portal. Monitoring appointments can at times run behind schedule, so I would plan for extra time when planning ahead. If you have a question, call or message via portal-while this clinic is quite busy, they do get back to you promptly...They [nurses] communicated my medication adjustments and were able to prevent premature ovulation. If they couldn’t reach me via phone, they would always send a portal message and responded to my questions promptly...
How was your experience with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr Irani is incredibly kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He doesn’t rush through appointments and encourages patients to ask questions. He responds to emails quickly and is very positive but realistic. We felt a sigh of relief once we met with him for our consult. He also adjusted medications based on hormone levels and clearly wasn’t just using a one-size-fits-all protocol, as I have diminished ovarian reserve and was put on a personalized protocol.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Schedule a consultation right away, because Dr Irani is a very sought-after doctor, for good reason!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mohamad Irani at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr Irani is always compassionate, calm, and encourages questions. He responded to emails, at times even electing to call instead with good news or for a more complicated conversation about treatment options, test results, etc. After having 2 miscarriages while trying to conceive naturally, we needed more information and reassurance than most, and Dr Irani was able to give that without giving false promises. Also, I have very low egg reserve, however donor eggs were never mentioned and they didn’t cancel my egg retrieval despite 3 or less eggs anticipated at time of retrieval. Dr Irani took a chance on us and gave us our miracle baby!
Describe the protocols Mohamad Irani used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
Agonist protocol with high-dose injectable hormones due to diminished ovarian reserve and low AFC. I was on stimulation medications for 13 days before triggering. I used ganirelix in order to prevent premature ovulation halfway through stimulations. I then was on progesterone in oil and estrogen tablets.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Deena, Diana, and Mary )
They communicated my medication adjustments and were able to prevent premature ovulation. If they couldn’t reach me via phone, they would always send a portal message and responded to my questions promptly.
